Hello Everyone !

東京,日本 Tokyo, Japan

I’ll show you some of my favorite shots I took in Japan last spring in this post. I was in Japan last spring for 3 months, it was the best time in my life. I already have flights back to Japan for the Autumn of 2011, which is in about 6 weeks and then you can read more about my life in Japan and see much much more photos ! but I’ll tell you more about my plans for that trip later 🙂 let’s now enjoy these photos!

Roppongi Hills, Mori tower is such an amazing place ! in there I got a feeling of joy and happiness that now, I’m truly finally in Japan.

Begin of the Sakura (Cherry blossom) time in Tokyo, it was so magical to see those flowers everywhere, in my flickr site I have own folder for Sakura because I took so much photos of them. this was taken in Shinjuku park.

This park is one of my favorites, it’s near Tsukiji but can’t remember the name right now , but it sure is a site to see ! I came here often just to relax and listen music.

The famous Rainbow bridge ! It Brings back many great memories, two specially. The first time I met a girl who is now my girlfriend, we walk together from Tokyo tower to Odaiba and we walked through that bridge, it was an amazing feeling 😀 . Other good memory is when I went there to take photos but it felt like the strong wind would have blown me away to the water !

The Giant Panda Ueno Zoo 恩賜上野動物園, Tokyo Japan 東京 日本

He surely loves that bambu! That morning I was in my home at Monzen-Nakacho watching the morning TV when I noticed that today was the day they reopened the Ueno Zoo. I quickly packed my camera and went to the park and then I saw a crazy long line of people. I walked around Ueno park a little see if the queue would get smaller but it just grew longer and longer, then I started to circle the zoo to see if there is another entrance and yes there were ! I got in right away ,no waiting at all ! but when I wanted to see this cute Panda I had to wait in a queue about 50 minutes give or take 😀 but it was worth it and right after I saw them I went back to the queue to see them again fast!.
